The Orange County Transportation Authority’s (OCTA) board has adopted its updated Next 10 Delivery Plan, which sets a course for delivering transit, street and freeway improvements, while protecting the environment in the California county through 2030.

The improvements are funded by OC Go, funds made possible by the Measure M half-cent sales tax for transportation improvements that was renewed by voters in 2006.

Included in the plan’s objectives are investments in transit, including completing construction and starting service of the OC Streetcar, sustaining Metrolink service and improving stations.

"Even with the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic, sound planning and financial management have translated directly to real benefits for Orange County’s entire transportation system. Whether you take the bus, train, drive, bike or walk, we continue working to make your trip a better one," said OCTA Chairman Andrew Do in a press release.
